Bare Essentials Review and Night Time Treatment Giveaway!


I just ran out of facial cleanser and was looking for something new to try when a friend of mine told me about Bare Essentials and raved about how wonderful they were.  I had heard about Bare Minerals makeup and had seen the remarkable results on my Mother's face before but little did I realize their line of skincare was just as incredible as their makeup! 

What is Bare Essentials?
According to their website, "How do you define a brand that's based on feeling?  Love. Understanding. Community.  That's what Bare Essentials represents.  It's a trusted source.  It's the belief that products can actually be good, makeup can be fun, business can be personal and companies can act more like communities.  It's an optimistic outlook shared by women everywhere who believe that, while makeup can't change the world, it can change people.  And people who are inspired to make all the difference.  It began when we asked women to imagine makeup that would actually change the way they feel about their skin and themselves.  It became less about makeup and more about what really matters."
Bare Essentials Skincare line is great because it covers so much ground.  If you're a woman that has uneven skin tone and wrinkles, they have something for you!  If you're a woman with oily skin and large pores, they've got something for you!  Bare Essentials Skincare has changed women's lives!  Can you say that about your current skincare line?  Here are a few examples of their popular skincare products.

Blemish Therapy $18
Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser
SPF 30 Natural Sunscreen $28
My Review
The wonderful people over at Bare Essentials sent me the Naturally Luminous Daily Duo: Dry Skin set to try out for myself.  I have a problem with dry skin year round for some reason and I'm always using lotions on my hands, legs and feet.  I carry lotion with me wherever I go because I get very uncomfortable without it.  But I'm also very picky when it comes to choosing the right lotions for me, they can't be too thick, sticky or leave a greasy residue.  It usually takes me a few minutes of pacing back and forth in the store aisles and testing out each lotion before I decide on one.  This set through me off a little bit because the lotion was for my face so it was supposed to be a little thicker.  I loved the face wash, it rinsed of smoothly and doesn't leave a yucky soap scummy residue like some other face soaps I've used in the past.  After using the facial cleanser I applied the moisturizer.  As I mentioned before, I don't know if it just takes some getting used to but the moisturizer was a little too thick for my taste.  But it did a very good job of moisturizing my face and making it feel soft and smooth.  
Pros: Cleanser washes off completely leaving no soap scummy residue behind, my face has continued to clear up, usually when I switch brands I break out but not this time!  The scent is lovely as well!  Very high quality products!
Cons: Moisturizer a little thick
